Bradley County Schools have received district growth funding to support education initiatives in the county. Specifically, Bradley County Schools received $202,000.
This funding is a direct result of an effort to not only fully fund education in Tennessee but also provide $18 million to cover school district growth.
"In order for our schools to be successful as they grow, we must invest in the resources they need," said Rep. Kevin Brooks. "That is why I was pleased to support this funding in last year’s budget and I am thrilled that Bradley County students will benefit from this investment."
“Our educators are tasked with the vital mission of shaping future Tennesseans; we must support our local schools and ensure that they have the resources to carry out this important undertaking,” said Rep. Dan Howell.
“It is so important for our public schools to have the tools and resources needed to provide quality education to our students,” said Senator Mike Bell. “This grant is great news for Bradley County Schools. It will help ensure that students and teachers are set for success, and I congratulate local officials for securing this grant.”
This funding has been so well received by parents, education officials, and teachers that Tennessee Governor Bill Haslam added another $18 million in growth funds to his Fiscal Year 2019 budget.
